Claymore Competitions

Osprey Publishing generously sponsored the competitions for the Best Display Game and Best Public Participation Game this year, so the winners went home with £50 Osprey gift vouchers as well as the trophies supplied by the South East Scotland Wargames Club.

Best Demonstration Game

Winner of the best display game was The Last Stand, 1939 by the League of Augsberg. This gorgeous demo was based on the Battle of Lvov, 1939.

In second place were the Iron Brigade with their demonstration Prohibition Wars. Somewhat confusingly this was a demonstration game in the morning but a public participation game in the afternoon.

In third place was this Warring States demonstration from Warhammer Historical.

Best Public Participation Game

RAF Leuchars Wargames Association's Bloody Omaha won them the SESWC Trophy and a £50 gift voucher from Osprey.

Urban Mammoth won second prize in this category with their Urban Wars participation game.

Third Prize went to Dingwall Wargames Club with a game which also featured urban fighting, this time on the Eastern Front during WWII.

I will be posting more pictures from Claymore 2006 soon.
